Already Medicity and a new High Court Complex are coming up adjacent to the new township that will make the whole area another bustling centre of activity in the vicinity of Srinagar. The Township will also have clusters of planned housing with neighbourhood level health and education facilities. “Shehjar Heights” Housing Colony at Bemina will have a peripheral road network with pavements, a club house with swimming pool and gymnasium, a community hall, and a shopping mall.

Highlighting the efforts of the government to rejuvenate the urban landscape in the UT, the Lt Governor said, cities and towns of J&K are experiencing a transformational urbanism that has been achieved through excellence in infrastructure planning and execution and stimulated local development.

The ongoing transformation in Srinagar, Jammu and their neighbouring towns is the harbinger of sustainable development.

Observing that Housing is the most important component of a city’s development and also defines the culture of that city, he stressed that infrastructure being developed must reflect our cities’ aesthetic and cultural values.

Satellite townships & housing colonies will accelerate economic activities in J&K, supplement our efforts to overcome challenges of urbanization and provide better housing facilities to the people. It will also generate large-scale skilled & unskilled employment.
